Right. That's a recent feature of Lintian.
Apropos Lintian. There are a few Lintian warnings, which should be fixed
(if not already fixed in the git repo):
But most of them are easy to fix:
3.8.3 (current is 3.9.2)
-> Should be updated. Check one of
-> Hopefully not too complex to add.
-> No problem, but I think either a slave alternative to aptitude or a
lintian override should be added. I'd prefer the slave alternative.
usr/share/man/ja/man8/aptitude.8.gz 145: warning: macro `Sh'
-> Should be looked at, but not immediately IMHO.
-> This indicates that the menu file for aptitude-gtk goes into the
aptitude-curses package. Should be fixed, but isn't urgent IMHO.
-> If reportbug (which makes use of that script) is installed, python
will be installed anyway, so I'd override this lintian warning and maybe
even file a bug against lintian.
-> See above.
And if you want to get the package real clean in the future, there are
also some less important issues which could be fixed:
-> Mention the word Spanish somewhere in aptitude-doc-es's long
-> Maybe not easy. I'd say not top priority, but worth to look at.
Feel free to ask questions about any of these lintian warnings.
